Maudite Glass: Nice golden/orange color. Pillowy,lasting,head. Big hop aroma(pine,citric),with dry bready malt slightly showing.Creamy,with nice texture. Mouth load of pine,spicy,hops and underlying malt. Finish is more pine and spicy,hops with bread. Leaves a very satisfying green,fresh hop linger. Shame the glass empties. Put together well and tasty IMO.

Clear gold pour with a nice white head. Aroma is pine and pithy citrus rind. Taste is pine, grass, and grapefruit rind. Bitter finish. Not bad but a fairly run of the mill IPA.

Bottled served at the Arboreal Inn great beer selection! The beer poured similar to a light beer but the taste was a great taste with good hops, very smooth going down!

Nice golden color, with a rich white head. Citric nose, heavy on the hops. Taste doesn't quite live up to the smell, but still a very, very agreeable IPA.

12 oz bottle - by far my favorite fall release. Pours a perfectly clear golden yellow color with lasting wisp of white head. Aroma is overall mild, but a blast of fresh dank hop bitterness nonetheless. Tropical fruit with pineapple and papaya as well. Flavor is delicious - bright floral hop bitterness with more fruity sweetness. Medium bodied, active carbonation, lingering bitter finish. Always worth the wait.

Bottle. Clear gold with a slight tint. Aroma is big lemon and orange citrus notes. The taste follows adding a touch of malt but, the clean, fresh hops take over and basically pop in your mouth with juicy citrus. The body is light on the palate with high carb and a short finish. Overall, as good as they come for harvest ales.

Transfer from BA review on 1-17-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a two finger head of a white color. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a citrus smell being a mix of citrus hop and a bit of sweet orange. Along with these aromas are notes of other hops with some pine and herbal smells present. Some light sweeter caramel smells as well as a bit of a bready smell are there as well giving an overall nice balanced IPA smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some tropical fruit tastes as well as a bit of a bready taste. The tropical fruits are largely of tangerine and mango but also have hints of pineapple within. Along with the bready and fruit are some hop flavors of a citrus nature. As the taste advances some grassy and herbal flavors come to the tongue. A moderately strong pine flavor later joins the tongue more toward the middle to the end giving a nice little resinous bite to the beer. While a sweeter caramel taste develops more toward the middle of the taste, it, as well as some of the fruit dwindle a bit toward the end. With some earthy hops coming to the tongue at the end of the taste, and combined with the rest of the tastes of the brew, one is left with a somewhat crackery, lightly sweetened and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on average side as well. For the drinkability and the style both were quite appropriate, creating a rather easy drinking but flavorful IPA.
Overall – A good hop blended IPA. Rather tasty overall.
